Wouldnt go that far. US has far greater experience in these matters than Russia, to start with, they invested almost 5 decades into research of this area. Amount of detail they went into making aircraft descrete as possible is just mindblowing. I dont expect Russian ever going to such lenghts regarding it.
Russians tend to have "Its good enough" approach to things in everything.
No actually. This is a load of nonsense. Faux objectivity.
Russia invented stealth. Look it up.
The YF 23 had better all aspect stealth than the F-22. The su 57 has more in common with the YF 23 than the F-22. True blend wing with podded engines and no traditional fuselage.
The F-22 is a F-15 with LO features. Its nothing special. Yet you think it is. You were fooled by the hype. But the US stronkists claim it as their trophy for winning the cold war. No matter what Russia does, it will never be good enough. Even if they build a better plane which they have.
You lost all your credibility when you said "Russians invented stealth"... seriously man. Is like saying Serbians invented electricity.
F-22 and F-15 have so many differences in their design that i can literally say that F-22 is actually MiG-25 with LO features because they both have wings and two engines. Delta-wing designs tend to look alike you know, because.. you know... delta fucking wings.
In regard of this particular niche of technology... yes.
You just lost your credibility by not bothering to look it up.
From Wiki. US approved Wiki :
Pyotr Yakovlevich Ufimtsev (Russian: Пётр Я́ковлевич Уфи́мцев) (born 1931 in Ust-Charyshskaya Pristan, West Siberian Krai, now Altai Krai) is a Soviet/Russian physicist and mathematician, considered the seminal force behind modern stealth aircraft technology. In the 1960s he began developing equations for predicting the reflection of electromagnetic waves from simple two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects.
Much of Ufimtsev's work was translated into English, and in the 1970s American Lockheed engineers began to expand upon some of his theories to create the concept of aircraft with reduced radar signatures.
